LG will introduce a redesigned flagship phone in June, codenamed Judy, reports Venture Beat. LG has previously said it would depart from its predictable smartphone launch cycle, with this June rumor marking a notable change. LG traditionally launches its G-series phones in the first half of the year, followed by its V-series in the second half.
According to Evan Blass, the notable leaker who wrote the VB story, LG’s new flagship phone will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip, 64GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM, stereo “boombox” speakers, wireless charging, and water, dust and impact resistance.
The HDR screen on Judy will reportedly measure a large 6.1 inches with an 18:9 Full Vision display. That would make it bigger than LG’s G6…

It is already known that LG will be introducing an enhanced version of the V30 smartphone with A.I features at the MWC 2018 later this months, instead of G6’s successor. Now @evleaks is saying that the next LG flagship will be codenamed ‘Judy’ with a brand new design will be introduced in June. The phone is said to feature a 6.1-inch 18:9 FullVision display, but it will use a MLCD+ panel with white sub-pixel in RGBW matrix offering high, 800-nit brightness while consuming 35% less power compared to IPS LCD panels. It is also said to pack Snapdragon 845 SoC, but it will be coupled only with 4GB of RAM, compared to 6GB in other flagships. It is not clear if it will have an enhanced version like the V30+. It further reveals stereo speakers, 16MP dual rear cameras with f/1.6-aperture, IP68 certification, military-grade durability, wireless charging and more. LG “Judy” rumored specifications 6.1-inch FullVision MLCD+ display with a 18:9 aspect ratio Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform with Adreno 630 GPU 4GB LPDDR4x RAM, 64GB internal memory, expandable memory up to 2TB with microSD Android 8.1 (Oreo) with LG UX 16MP dual rear cameras with f/1.6-aperture front camera with wide-angle lens Fingerprint sensor Water, dust resistant (IP68), MIL-STD …
Rumors say that LG is cooking up another version of the V30 with AI camera smarts for an MWC debut, but that doesn’t mean that LG doesn’t have a brand new flagship coming.
LG is currently working on a new flagship smartphone codenamed “Judy”, says VentureBeat. The device is said to have an all-new design and a 6.1-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and Full Vision slim bezels.
Also of note about the Judy’s display is that LG is reportedly using a new type of screen known as MLCD+. With an RGBW matrix that includes a white sub-pixel, the screen can allegedly achieve an 800-nit brightness while using 35 percent less power than regular IPS LCD screens.
Other specs said to be included with LG’s Judy is a Snapdragon 845 processor, 64GB of built-in storage, 4GB of RAM, stereo speakers, HDR10, wireless charging, and an IP68 water and dust resistant body that can also stand up to impacts.
Like other recent LG flagships, the Judy is expected to have a dual rear camera setup. This phone will reportedly offer two 16MP cameras with f/1.6 lenses. LG is also said to be packing in its camera AI technologies into the Judy.
LG is said to be targeting a June debut for its new flagship device.
While some of these rumored features would be expected for a new LG flagship in 2018, like dual rear cameras and a Snapdragon 845, there are some interesting aspects of the Judy being rumored. That new battery-saving display sounds nice, and I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of new design LG has cooked up for its flagship.

Since the G6 was unwrapped at MWC last year, you might expect LG to unveil the G7 at the end of this month in Barcelona, but you’d be wrong. The Korean company has recently decided to overhaul its launch strategy, so all we’re getting at MWC 2018 is apparently an AI-infused iteration of the V30. LG’s true next flagship smartphone is set to arrive in June, according to a new report from VentureBeat’s Evan Blass, a.k.a. @evleaks. This device will not be called G7, which means we may bid farewell to the G series. Right now it’s known only by its codename: Judy. LG V30, Judy’s…
